Last year when Square Enix announced that they would be parting ways with IO Interactive, the developer behind the Hitman franchise, many questioned what would become to the game? Given its popularity it wouldn’t make sense for it to just die out, and earlier this year it was announced that Warner Bros. would be picking up the publishing duties.
The good news is that if you’re looking forward to seeing a new Hitman game, you’ll be pleased to learn that HITMAN 2 has been officially announced. Note that there have obviously been more than one game in the Hitman franchise, but this will instead be the sequel to the version of the game that was released back in 2016.
According to the game’s website, “HITMAN 2 brings you 6 brand new sandbox locations to plan out the perfect assassination. Hugely complex environments provide you with endless opportunities to take out your targets in creative ways.” So far one of the locations has been revealed to be Miami.
The game will also continue to feature creative ways to take out your target, from stealth, to sabotage, and more. It will also feature a brand new campaign, Elusive Targets, and it is also expected to be continuously updated with free live content, although it appears that there will still be DLCs in the form of expansion packs. The game is currently available for pre-order where it will be released on the 13th of November for the PS4, Xbox One, and the PC.
